What is it?

The Colonial Fund exists to fund high impact innovations within our schools that would not otherwise be feasible. These projects or opportunities often come up outside of our annual budget cycle or they are too costly to offer without sacrificing existing programs or staff. 

The Colonial Fund enables us to bring these innovations to our schools now. Acting with such expediency helps ensure Shrewsbury schools are providing the high quality education that will prepare our students to succeed in colleges and careers of the 21st century.

Since it's inception in 2012, The Colonial Fund has raised over $190,000 for innovative projects in Shrewsbury Public Schools.

This year, we need your help to raise $20,000 for materials and technology to transform the old "Tech Ed" classroom at Oak Middle School into a new STEM Design Lab for the entire school community.   For more details about this exciting project, click here.

Future plans and needs for the Design Lab include:

Funding this new STEM Design Lab is not in the current School Department operating budget. Please help us to fund the $20,000 needed to purchase these materials by making a donation here.
